Two dead, in Lions Gate Bridge crash

Lions Gate Bridge was open for rush hour this morning after a deadly crash last night.

The bridge was closed at about 11:45 p.m. Wednesday when a northbound car lost control and slammed into an oncoming West Vancouver Transit bus, and a third car piled into the wreck.

Two young men in the first car were rushed to hospital but could not be saved, and four of 15 people aboard the bus, including the driver, have been treated for non-life threatening injuries.

West Vancouver Police Sgt. Ed Pearce says the force of the crash was horrific.

He says the black car is crushed to about half its normal width, while the passenger side of the vehicle has been flattened into the area behind the driver's seat.

Investigators are still trying to determine what caused the collision and traffic will not be moving normally on the span for several hours. (The Canadian Press, CKNW)
